I like to stop at lemonade stands when I'm laying out rallies. Today there were two. The one in Rowley was 50c and the proprietrix seemed to be getting a fair amount of business. But I preferred the one I came across on a dinky side road in Georgetown: 25c for less lemonade but much more enthusiasm, including a paper-snowflake "flyer" exhorting me to come back "next spring". I'm sure I will, as it's a pretty road, but who knows if it'll be the right weekend for the lemonade stand.
|upgrading voicemail systems
As part of Permabit's move we upgraded our phone system, which means we won't be able to keep our old voicemail. This is sad, because there's a particular piece of it I'd been keeping around. It's from miss_chance
, and it goes something like this:
So I'm listing my favorite foods, and thinking about mentally walking through a grocery store, mentally walking through different parts of town, different favorite restaurants, and then I was like well, ah, ave polta, and different traveling, what was my favorite food here and there? And I was doing that, and I had hmm, what was my favorite food in Turkey? What was my favorite food in Chile? Ooh, I like that. What was my favorite food when I lived under the Pacific Ocean?
Right in that same little path with going to Turkey, going to Chile, I had me living about half a mile down from the surface of the Pacific Ocean somewhere.
I liked tomato soup when I was there, by the way.
